ABOUT ECOfluid Systems Inc.
ECOfluid designs, builds and operates wastewater treatment plants based
on its patented Upflow Sludge Blanket Filtration - USBF(TM) technology for
municipal, industrial, and real estate development applications with over one
hundred installations throughout Canada, the United States and the Caribbean.
The underlying strength of the technology is that it uses biological
processes, including biological nutrient removal to meet new regulatory
restrictions on nitrogen and phosphorus effluent content. The resulting
compact bioreactor substantially reduces equipment size and costs, while
achieving high quality treated effluent suitable for reuse in non-potable and
industrial applications. ECOfluid's patented USBF(TM) technology is considered
to be one of the most affordable and effective wastewater treatment systems in
the world today and was cited by the United Nations Industrial Development
Organization (UNIDO) as "an important environmental process revolution".
The company has won a number of awards and accolades in the past. In 2002
the University of California, Davis rated the USBF(TM) technology as the
highest ranked biological treatment system out of almost seventy technologies
reviewed. In 2006, Frost & Sullivan awarded the technology Packaged Wastewater
Treatment Technology Leadership of the Year Award, and at the 2007
Environmental Industry Summit in California, ECOfluid won the Technology Merit
Award from the Environmental Business Journal."
